This place never lets you down and has been running for FOUR generations with the same consistency.
So before we venture into the delicious food, let us take a walk around the old town of Penang...
Right along Cintra Street the road parallel to People's Park where our dinner venue is, shoplot No 76 which sell the best 'Eu Char Koay' in Penang.

Then, right opposite this shop, still along Cintra Street is Ng Kee Cake Shop, selling traditional biscuits and goodies ...
The wide selection makes your mouth water.
Even if you are not a dessert person, just go in and have a look.
There are savoury char siew buns and great sweets as well.
Now for the highlight ... Boey Chong Kee

Tip from Foodie
Go with a big group of people so you can savor more dishes
Also must go early as the wait may be very long... after all this is a family business
Over the years, the prices here have gone up rather drastically but what to do ...
if you come across good food, it has to be worth the money cause
these days ...
GOOD FOOD IS HARD TO FIND !
